Qualifications and assessment
This course uses RARPA as its method of assessment.
RARPA stands for Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement which is the process of assessment for non-accredited learning. It is a means of validating the outcomes of programmes which do not result in qualifications. RARPA is a five stage process which measures and records learners’ progress, achievements and attendance.
The challenge – can you all write a story together? Each family member writes a sentence or paragraph each, or you can tell someone and they can write it for you. They can be as funny or as serious as you like. This challenge doesn’t have to be done all at the same time e.g. if someone is out at work they can add a sentence when they get home and the story can continue all week.
Inspiration and ideas will be given – can’t wait to read the finished stories.
Where can it lead?
We hope that this session will help you discover learning as a family and that it will inspire you to do more. Learning as a family benefits everyone. It’s a great way to boost confidence in your child and to help them with their school work. We hope that you might consider learning something in the future just for you.
We have lots of courses available to help you develop your own skills and interests. If you are aged 16-29 our Youth Employment Initiative could be for you.
